CHICAGO NATI0NA1 I DEFEAT
DETROIT AMER1 TS
5 TO 1
At that the crowd was more de
monstrative than the big outpouring
of Wednesday. Reulbach's brilliant
pitching in the early innings and
crashing hits by Steinfeldt, Evers
and Sheckard roused the Chicago
partisans while the Detroit conting
ent cheered more heartily so that the
visiting team might not think itself
deserted.
First Score In Second
The play was much faster than on
the previous days. Only thirteen
batters faced Reulbach in the first
four innings, while the Chicago hit
ters lost no time in straightening
out Siever's benders.. The first rnu
came in the second inning when
Steinfeldt lined the ball over third
base, reaching second on the hit.
Kling sacrificed and Evers slung a
double over first base.
Steinfeldt scored, but Evers was
left when Schulte and Tinker were
retired on infield grounders.
With Reulbach going at top speed
that one run looked good enough to
win, but just to make the result cer
tain the Nationals went after the
Siever curves savagely In the fourth.
Jones getting the ball near the boun
dary. Kling followed with a hard sin
gle to right. Evers sent him to third
with another drive to the same ter
ritory and Schulte dropped a fly safe
ly in center, Kling scoring. Evers
tried to make third on the hit, but
was caught and run down by a swarm
of Detroit players, Schulte advanc
ingto second. Tinker lifted a high
fly to Jones but the left fielder drop
ped the ball, Schulte scoring and
Tinker going to third. Reulbach
cut. a low ball over second base, send
ing Tinker home. Couglin then
caught Slagle'p high fly.
Killian Goes In
Manager Jennings decided that
Siever had failed to make good so
Killlan appeared in the next inning.
He was greeted warmly enough, two
doubles and a hard single being
gleaned off his delivery. Only one
run resulted, however, as the hits
alternated with outs. Chance se
cured the first double add conse
quently scored a run.
Detroit lost its first chance to
score in the fifth because Tinker in­

Chicago, Oct. IX.—The American
a
League team suffered its second suc
cesive defeat at the hands of the Chi
cago Nationals yesterday, scoring
only one run.
Chicago tallied five times, four of
the runs being the result of solid
hitting. Siever started to pitch for
Detroit, but the locals took kindly to
his curves and batted him out ol the
box in four innings. Killian then
took up the work and was found for
three hits and another run In the
fifth.
Detroit tried vainly to Dreaa
through the Chicago defense, Reul
bach pitched strongly in the open
ing innings and when he showed
signs of weakening in the fifth and
sixth innings his team mates came to
his rescue with fast double plays.
at 'Crowd Was ^Smaller |fi
For some reason the game failed
to atract the usual large crowd to the
grounds, the official atendance fig

AT ANNUAL MEETING HAH ATT AW

World Is Being Scoured by Both Fac
tions—About 81 Per Cent of Total
Stock Will Probably Be Represent­
ed, at Meeting—Fish to Get In
junction Forbidding Harriman to
Vote Union Pacific Stock.
New York, Oct. 10.—Out of a to
tal of 950,000 shares of Illinois Cen/
tral stock votable at the annual
meeting October 16 next, it is esti
mated that approximately 675,000
shares, or 71 per cent, will be voted
by the Hiarahan ticket and that the
Fish party will not be able to vote
more than 95,000 shares, or about 10
per cent.
A year ago President Fish con
trolled 690,695 shares out of a total
of 692,546 shares voting.
It is quite probable that a/a re
sult of the strenuous canvass that is
now being made by both parties a
larger

will be polled than that
indicated by the above figures. In
that case the Harahan vote may ex
ceed 700,000 shares and the Fish
vote may exceed 100,000 shares.
However, in any case, the relative
lineup of the two factions is likely
to be along the above ratios.
Important as bearing upon the
outcome of this meeting are the re
ports that Mr. Fish will endeavor to
obtain an, Injunction to restrain the,
Union Pacific from voting its 281,
291 shares of Illinois Central stock,
of which substantially 95,000 shares
are owped by the Railroad Securities
company. Already E. H. Harriman
has transferred 14,000 shares of this
stock to'his own name and it Is
probable that the balance will be
transferred to the names of individu
als. Similar steps were taken by
the Union Pacific in 1903 at the time
of the Harriman-Keene fight in the
Southern Pacific.
It is usually not very difficult to
obtain an injunction in some court,
and if Mr. Fish we're successful in
securing an Injunction a few hours
before the meeting he might be able
to tie up the entire Union Pacific
vote before steps could be taken to
have the meeting postponed until the
Question of the legality of the Union
Pacific holdings could be determined.

WAGNER, LAKE ANDES & AR­
MOUR TRACTION PEOPLE
BEFORE COUNCIL.
Representatives of Electric Company
Heard Last Night at Meeting of
Council The Proposition They
Make—Final Action to Be Taken
Saturday Night.
Messrs. Abscher and Pease, repre
senting the Wagner, Lake Andes &
Armour Traction company, appeared
before the city council last night
relative to an electric light and pow
er franchise. These people submitted
an offer to the council at the time it
first called for proposals, but as the
Freehauf offer appeared to be more
acceptable it was accepted.. Now the
Wagner people are again pushing an
ordinance. The meeting last night
was held to discuss the offer infor
mally, About the only differences
between the proposition they submit
and the Freehauf franchise is in the
rate. The Wagner people have the
same rates up to the 100 to 200 kilo
watt charges. Beyond that they in
crease three-quarters of a cent. Also
the offer last night provided that the
city council, If It deemed It neces
sary, could readjust the rates after
ten years. The Freehauf proposition
only required five years.
As to arc lights, the offer last
night was to furnish 1,200 candle
power lamps, with an all night every
night service, at the rate of $70 per
lamp per year. The Freehauf fran
chise provided a charge of $6 per
month for such lights. -"W-.:
The representatives of the com
pany said that in the event of
their securing a franchise they would
to the best of their ability endeavor
to have 50 street lights in operation
by January 15, 1908.
Also, they will agree to make a
deposit to pay the cost of publishing
the ordinance if passed. After it is
passed and before it is signed by the
mayor they will put up a bond of
$2,000 as an evidence of good faith
in carrying out their project. The
council will meet Saturday night to
take definite action on the question.
to be caught napping if any such
move is attempted, and while he may
now prepare for it by having the
Union Pacific's Illinois Central stock
transferred into the names of indi
viduals temporarily at the last mo
ment, some entirely new plan might
be decided upon in order to circum
vent any eleventh-hour maneuver by
the Fish party.
At the meeting next Wednesday
directors are to be elected to succeed
Messrs. Fish, Harriman and Astor.
Normally, under the cumulative sys
tem of voting in Illinois, Mr. Fish, by
concentrating all his strength upon
one director, might be able to elect
himself -but it is understood that,
under the charter of the Illinois Cen
tral, this cumulative system of voting
does not obtain, and that if Mr.
Fish wishes to. elect himself he must
obtain a majority of all the votes.
No such canvass to control an an
nual meeting has been made In re
cent financial history as that to con
trol the next Illinois Central.
The world "is being scoured ""for
stock. E. H. Harriman was asked
whether he desired to make any
staement regarding the story that
14,000 Bhares of Illinois Central
stock owned by the Union Pacific had
been transferred to his account by a

Cincinnati, Ohio, Oct. 11.—Opposi
tion to President Roosevelt's sugges
tion of national Incorporation of rail
roads was declared In an Interview
here yesterday by William J. Bryan
of Lincoln, Neb. Mr. Bryan said:
"National incorporation of rail
roads as proposed by President
Rooseveut is the most far-reaching
step for centralization proposed in
this country since Hamilton submit
ted his plan of government. Hamil
ton provided for the president and
senators to be elected for life and
the appointment of state governors
by the the national government to
serve for life. The president's plan
contemplates national incorporation
of railroads and other corporations
doing an Interstate business. The
result would be "to extend greatly the
powers of the general government
and proportionately reduce the au
thority of the states. The president
is, no doubt, actuated by the same
sincere motives that Hamilton was,
but, like Hamilton, he seems to be
lieve that the farther we get the gov
ernment away from the people the
better it is. I am satisfied his plan
will not be accepted. In fact, two
official bodies have recently taken
other sides. The attorneys general at
St. Louis prepared a memorial ask
ing for the restriction of the jurisdic
tion of the lower federal courts, and
this morning's papers report that the
state railroad commissioners have
expressed opposition to national In
corporation."

Kellogg Strikes Snag in Standard In­
vestigation— P. S. Trainor De
clares He Never Heard of the
v«v-
000,000 Loans to Him On the Com
pany's Books.
New York, Oct. ±1.—Loans of
$20,000,000 which the books of the
Southern Pipe Line company show
were made to P. S. Trainor between
1899 and 1905 became more puzzling
of solution to Frank B. Kellogg, con
ducting the federal suit against the
Standard Oil company yesterday,
When Mr. Trainor, taking the Witness
stand in the oil suit, testified that
the money had never been paid to
him, and that he had never heard
of the accounts. The Southern's
books show unsigned vouchers were
received for these loans, and that
the money was never handed back to
the company.
Trainor said he was formerly a
crude oil purchasing agent for the
Standard Oil company of New York,
and as stlch purchased all oil sold to
the refineries., He said he acted in a
similar capacity now for the Stand
ard Oil company of, New Jersey. Mr.
Kellogg called Mr. Trainor's atten
tion to the various loans, amounting
to $20,000,000, which were made by
the Southern Pipe Line company and
charged to "P. S. Trainor," and ask
ed him to tell all he knew concern
ing the -loans.
Professes Ignorance
"I do not know anything about
these loans," answered Mr. Trainor.
"I had an account with the Southern
Oil company, but no money account.
I never gave them any vouchers and
never heard anything about the
loans."
Trainor said he fixed the price paid
for crude oil after consulting with
John D. Archbold, vice president of
the Standard. These consultations
were held daily, Mr. Trainor said,
and after they were over he made
public the market price of crude' oil.
H. M. Tilford, treasurer of the
Standard Oil company of California
and president of the Continental Oil
company, when asked to produce the
reports of the Continental company,
testified that whenever a new report
was received he invariably destroyed
the old one. The reports of the Con-*
tinental contained Information re
garding the business done by compet
ing oil companies.
Mr, Kellogg will have a conference
with Attorney General. Bonaparte at
Washington today to discuss the pro
gress of the government's casei
against the Standard Oil company.
